	I think that with ftp+ssl it would be slightly more secure that it used 
to be, aka plain text. I would think that any security site conscious 
site would want to use ssh based stuff, but for a plain transfer of 
files such as iso's or putting stuff up on a site ftp+ssl combo would do 
the trick.

	There are many ftp clients out there, many free, but very few scp/sftp
